Midland, Mich.-based Dow Corning Corp. has announced that its
Dow Corning® Tilt-Up Weatherproofing Sealant is now being
sold under a new name: Dow Corning® Contractors Concrete Sealant
We feel this change better positions us for use across
a wider range of construction applications, said Duane Govitz,
marketing manager, construction industries, Americas.
According to the company, the Tilt-Up name limited
the sealants potential. CCS is a great choice for
construction applications requiring a low-modulus, high-movement,
100-percent silicone sealant with excellent, unprimed adhesion
to concrete, brick or masonry, said Govitz.
The company says CCS will be priced in the same range as comparable
Govitz said the product name change and aggressive product pricing
are part of Dow Cornings strategy to compete directly against
urethane sealants in low-rise, commercial projects.
